English Children's and Youth Culture

Course 7.5 credits

The aim of this course is to broaden a student's understanding of English language culture for children and youth and use it in the classroom. The student analyses a range of cultural expressions such as literature, games, and music, and reflects upon their pedagogical application. A broad concept of text is emphasised in the course, as is an intercultural perspective. Subject specific pedagogy is integrated into the course.
